I posted this on the EAC forum but got no response… sorry
Newbie questions, sorry.
System: Compaq Presario 8000T
Windows XP Pro
DVD Reader: Samsung SD 616Q
DVD Writer: HP DVD Writer 300c
I using a Samsung SD 616Q as the cd reader. i’ve tried the read offset detection function and although i get consistent values on repeated tests of each disk, none of them return the same offset. I’ve tried 4 reference disks:
Beatles - Sgt Pepper +2988 LeadIn Only
Beatles - Please Please Me +2343 LeadIn Only
Hair Soundtrack +1388 LeadIn Only
Ammie Mann - I’m w/ stupid +1898 LeadIn Only
My plan was to copy from cd w/ EAC and write using RecordNow 5 (which came with the computer so I know it will write to the HP 300c).
Just how much will I loose if I don’t set the offset? I know it won’t be an ‘exact’ copy but will the copy be better that a copy made with some other software.
I’m also confused as to whether I need to use ASPI or not (i’ve tried the test w/ the Nero ASPI DLL and w/o - same result).
